BEHIND THE LENS
I am the Andy (Andreas if I have been bad) behind Andy Schrader Photography. Perhaps not the most original name for my business, but it is who I am and I don't want to hide behind a name that doesn't show who I am. Who am I?
I am not going to tell you that I enjoy being outdoors, fishing, reading spending time with the family...oh I just did.
What I will tell you is that I am a photographer.
I use my camera to instantly freeze those moments that are so fleeting. Blink and you'll miss them, metaphorically speaking. Whether it's your child growing up, your wedding day or indeed any special occasion. Nothing lasts forever, but a great photograph captures the moment. It will tell your and your families story, so you can revisit those precious moments in the past again. Like a time machine only more compact and real.
Whilst I am based in sunny Larkhall, I do cover Glasgow and it's surrounding areas and if requested further afield. Providing family portrait photography, wedding photography and event photography.
I love capturing those candid moments, when people are relaxed and unaware that there is a camera aimed at them. People being themselves, no fake smiles just genuine emotion. Of course I can create an image where everybody is posed and knows their photograph will be taken too.
I believe a great photograph, apart from it's subject is down to light. Everybody loves natural light.
But unfortunately sometimes, we can't use natural light. Whether it's because the church is quite dark inside or because we live in Scotland and we don't get that lovely California sun that we all see in those beautiful images on Pinterest.
So I learned how to use artificial light, having a photographer who can use artificial light is definitely a good idea.
If you need a photographer, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire... Andy Schrader Photography.
Okay so you have found me already, why not get in touch to see if you can hire me.
